Schooner Head Cottage

There are only a handful of properties on Mount Desert Island with the dramatic and spectacular open-oceanfrontage that Schooner Head Cottage has. Located just 1/3 mile from the Sand Beach entrance to Acadia National Park, this property enjoys expansive ocean views and amazing granite ledges along the water's edge (access into the water is somewhat limited as the coastline is mostly ledge). The 5 acres of land include lovely trees and grass—a nice retreat for your family—and is very private. Just a 5 minute drive into downtown Bar Harbor (or take the pathway for a refreshing 45 minute walk), and a mile to Sand Beach, one of Acadia's most popular attractions!

The 3000 sq foot cottage features a large living/great room, with adjacent dining area and spacious kitchen. There is a massive granite fireplace in the living room, deck access and ocean views. There is a 1/2 bathroom off the great room.

On one side of the cottage is a second floor suite featuring a queen bed and two twin daybeds (even a small kitchenette). There are sliding partition doors to separate the sleeping areas, as well as a full bathroom. There is also an awesome upper deck! Below the suite, on the first floor, is a queen bedroom (one of the entries into the cottage is off this room).

The master bedroom suite is on the other end of the cottage, It features a king bed with fireplace, spacious full bathroom, and a large sitting room with couches (including a queen sleep sofa), atrium, large sauna tub and fabulous stain glass artistry.

The location and oceanfrontage of Schooner Head are extraordinary. And the cottage offers a comfortable, spacious respite for your family!

One other feature of interest is a basement level billiards room. A small spiral staircase located in the living room takes you down to this room. There is a nice billiards table and some bar stools and counter.

Amenities include a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, cookware and diningware. There is satellite TV in the living room, 2nd floor suite and in master bedroom. There is also a DVD player, limited WIFI, landline phone (cell service can be "iffy" here) and WIFI. There is a gas BBQ grill, outdoor dining and seating. Other amenities include built in generator (which automatically comes on during a power outage), double ovens in kitchen. Click here for more complete list of household items/ amenities.

Acadia National Park is just 1 minute away! Bar Harbor has lots of fun stuff to do, like whale watch tours, sea kayak tours, bike rentals, scooter rentals, lighthouse tours, sightseeing bus tours, and much more. In the area there is also mini-golf (in addition to the 4 golf courses), water park, oceanarium, airplane sightseeing tours, hiking, walking—fun for the whole family!
